Platinum Phoenix by CantonHeroine Platinum Phoenix by CantonHeroine
Acrylic painting. Original size: 600mm x 900mm.

Spike!

I did this one after the Buffy finale, but before he started on Angel. Kind of a transitional thing, rising from the ashes of one confrontation and into another.
I tried for a sepia type of feel for the the most part, then went darker with the Angel segment. The only real colour is the blue of his eyes.
